Linux is always crashing - bad board?

I already had some great help from people in irc chat....but unfurtunately the problem is still present.

I received my pine64+ 2Gb together with Android SD card and power supply.
I connected to TV and there was the allwinner boot screen ...forver!
I checked SD card and re-burned android but always the same.

I connected to the irc chat and 
- checked power supply: I'm now using 5V/4A
- bought a serial ttl converter to debug
- checked for soldering blobs during manufacturing
- checked SD card with F3
- removed Ethernet, HDMI, keyboard and all other connections - only power and TTL are left  
I tried the images:
a) Debian Mate (3.10.102 BSP 2) from
b) and Ubuntu minimal image from

BUT, always same problem: The pine64 crashes with "Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address".
Somethines during boot ...somethimes later, depending what I'm doing.
I found out that as smaller the image as longer (minutes) it takes until crash/freeze. For example, with 2b) I could login and do something but as soon as connect ethernet or load something into mem it crashes. With 2a) I'm not even possible to login - and HDMI screen is always blank. 

I have attached some random serial consol logs. Please have a look to it.
I suppose that I have received a malfunction pine64 board and hopefulle pine64 will replace it and send me a new one.

Many thanks in advance
